A chair that gives direction

Magis Stanley Chair

Philippe Starck’s team worked three years rethinking the folding director’s chair. New technology and strong, beautiful materials deliver a simple chair that in reality is a complicated geometry supporting a complex set of forces. The result, in glass reinforced polypropylene, with easy-to-maintain fabric or leather for seat and back, is far more than an update, but an answer to Magis’ request for “the best director’s chair in the world.”
